ADmitMac 6 join domain issue

dumamo used Ask the Experts™
We have a Mac running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 with the latest version of ADmitMac (v6) installed. We are trying to join it to our 2008 Domain. It was unjoined due to issues and now when we try to join it back we get the message:

The computer account password for this Macintosh is no longer valid. This can be due to a differnt computer being joined to your domain with the same computer name, or by a domain administrator restting the compter account password.

We receive this message whether we build the AD object first and attach or if we join with no AD computer object present. In the latter case we see a new AD object, but we still have this error.We went so far as reinstalling the software and trying a different computer name and everytime we got the same message.

The app may have left a plist on your mac that is holding onto an outdated setting. Read through this article, it's not the same issue that you have but it does give info where AdMitMac creates files and settings.

I hope it helps.


Was not the solution but provided good information to help us understand ADmitMac better. Found final solution with support. ADmitMac needed to create the object to attach, not us.
